Nettles in our Luxury Shampoo Bars

   24 Apr 2020

I've been keeping on eye on the nettles around the house and today I deem it the day for picking them.  I'll then dry them in the shady sun (plenty of it around these days, lucky for us) for a few days.  Then with gloves on, I'll crumple them up and put into a jar along with olive oil and leave either in direct sun (we'll be even luckier if the sun lasts that long) for a day or heat over a bain marie for an hour.  This oil gets stored away for a couple of months and when I'm making a batch of Lavender or Rosemary Soap I'll throw in half the jar in each as part of my olive oil allowance for that soap.  To see where these nettles are going: Lavender and Nettle Shampoo Bar, Rosemary and Nettle Shampoo Bar go to Luxury Shampoo Bars
